Grass Roots training

Organizing for America and the Democratic Party of Virginia are teaming up to offer grass roots training. Regional training sessions will be conducted quarterly.

The Charlottesville session was very informative and well-attended. Learning to use the tools of grass-roots activism can make us so much more effective.
